Drama: Abraham's visitors

Alternative narration of the story (for children)

Narrator
One day Abraham was sitting by his tent. Suddenly he looked up and saw three visitors standing there. He ran to meet them.
Abraham
Hello! Please don't go any further, stay here for a bit. I will go and find something for you to eat.
1st visitor   (bowing)
Thank you.
2nd visitor   (bowing)
That would be very nice.
3rd visitor  (bowing)
Yes, we are tired after our journey.
Narrator
Abraham hurried back to the tent, and spoke to Sarah, his wife.
Abraham
Please make some cakes quickly and please make sure they are the best you can make!
Narrator
Then Abraham hurried to find something else to eat. He asked the servants:
Abraham
Please will you cook something really tasty for our visitors?
1st servant
Of course.
2nd servant
We will cook some meat.
3rd servant
We will do it quickly.
Narrator
The servants cooked the meat, and Sarah made the cakes. They brought the food out to the visitors, who sat and ate. Then one of the visitors asked:
1st visitor
Where is your wife Sarah?
Abraham
She is in the tent.
2nd visitor
Soon your wife Sarah will have a baby son.
Narrator
And the Bible tells us that Sarah laughed when she heard this, because she was too old to have a baby!
